Abstract: Equal channel angular pressing (ECAP) is a technique used to impose strain in material which helps to increase the mechanical properties of a material. It is generally used to refine grain size of the material by passing sample through equal channel. In this study, analysis on frictional effect in equal channel angular pressing using aluminum 1100 has been done by using FEM software DEFORM-3D version 10.1. Dies with different channel angle were designed with the help CATIA. This study shows the effect of friction with different die channel angle. It has been found that with the increase in friction, reduction in corner gap is found (dead zone), which may cause material damage and improve strain distribution homogeneity. The result obtained with FEM simulation are compared to those obtained theoretically, thus it is found that the current study is in good agreement to the theoretically result.
